    Greetings! I'd like to make a dining reservation at Space 220 for an upcoming trip, but do not yet know my exact party size. It will be from 2 - 4 people.... what do you recommend for making that ADR? Thanks for any magical tips you can share!

    Greetings, Tami, and welcome back to planDisney, where our advice is out of this world! Your Walt Disney World Resort visit in November is sure to be a blast-off, so let's talk about securing the best dining reservation in the galaxy. 

    Space 220 Restaurant is a phenomenal dining experience I'm sure you and your astronaut crew will enjoy. Did you know you can choose from two experiences? If you book a reservation at Space 220 Restaurant, you will enjoy a prix fixe meal, including an appetizer and main course for lunch. At dinner time, you'll also choose a tasty dessert. The restaurant seating is close to the space station windows and gives a mesmerizing view of astronauts, and sometimes astrodogs, floating by. 

    You could also accept a mission to the Space 220 Lounge. This area is in the exact dining location but further from the windows. The lounge seating offers a sweeping vantage point for stargazing, and my husband and I prefer ordering à la carte from the lounge menu. The Flight Bites are the perfect size to get several and share, and for us, no visit to EPCOT is complete without the Blue Moon Cauliflower. A bonus tip is that you can often order the prix fixe meal from the lounge, giving you more dining flexibility when choosing that option.

    Since both dining experiences book quickly, my first advice is to be open to either. They are in the same dining room, so you double your chances of securing a reservation if you look for both. As for the size of your flight crew, I always book the maximum number I think I'll have. It's easier to reduce your party size later than to increase it. But if you don't see any openings for a party of four, you can always try for two. My final tip is that the lounge sometimes takes walk-up guests, so I always try that if I cannot make reservations. I've been at the hostess stand at opening and was given a return time for the lounge, so keep that tip in your flight suit pocket!

    Remember to book your dining as soon as your 60-day reservation window opens, and if you're a guest of a Disney Resort Hotel, you can book your meals for the length of your stay at that time. Try for Space 220 reservations first, and if you can book that meal for a day later in your visit, you might have better luck with availability.

    Tami, I'm sprinkling pixie dust and meteor showers that your trip will have you over the moon! I wish I could board that "Stellarvator" with you. Please stop by planDisney anytime because you're always a part of our crew.

    Magic awaits,
